FSN September Newsletter: Last Chance for Summer Sun!

Summer Sunshine

September means the end of summer, and yet there is still time before temperatures fall into the cool days of autumn. For a few weeks more, summer sunshine will grace us with warm days and cool nights. Before you turn the page to the new season, engage in some fun summer activities. Go camping, play a neighborhood game of kickball and buy yourself or a loved one another arrangement of fabulous summer flowers.

Because that’s how you celebrate the last days of summer, by enjoying the warmth of the summer sun outside and the beauty of summer inside.

Best Reasons to Send Flowers in September

Not that you ever need an excuse, but in case you were looking for some ways to justify the expenditure, here are 5 GREAT reasons to send flowers in September! And remember, your local florist is always your best option.

#2. First Day of Autumn – September 23rd – The sweltering heat of summer is finally giving way to cooler temperatures. A lovely bouquet is always the perfect way to welcome in fall’s explosion of color. The leaves turn, the harvest is gathered and Mother Nature prepares for a long winter’s nap.
